For the people who are confused, just because a channel is required to be default or general doesn't mean the name of the channel has to be general or default, this feature would be like a tag or a permission in the channel
Lets say I want my bot to do a Welcome Message (whenever a bot joins a server the bot can send a message with some info about maybe configuring the bot) or maybe I want to do changelogs so that all the people who have my bot know what new features my bot has...
The current best way of getting a general channel is to basically look for the word "general" in the channel name. As some servers may not have a channel named that or they have multiple general named channels the bot most likely won't be sending it's message in the appropriate location without a configuration command.
So I believe it must be a requirement for every server that atleast one channel must be a 'general' or 'default' channel so that the bot can post their message appropriately
